Growing a garden can be both rewarding and relaxing, and while many types of fruit, vegetable, and herb gardens are grown outdoors, many can be cultivated indoors, too. Consider one of the following top smart garden kits to help get your green thumb motivated.
1. Smart Garden 3
The Smart Garden 3 kit provides the opportunity to have fresh herbs year-round with little maintenance. Because herbs need sunlight and fresh water, the simplicity of this kit takes care of both of the plant's requirements. The kit features a planter that is self-watering, an attached LED grow light, and nutrient rich and pH balanced soil packed into three individual plant pods. Choose from over 50 seed selections or use your own.

5. Chef'n Microgreens Garden
When fresh greens and herbs are part of your diet, there is no better way to get the "freshest" produce than growing your own with the Chef'n Microgreens Garden. Instead of growing full-size items that take a while to produce edible goods, the microgreens garden grows miniature versions, which take less time - as little as a week for some varieties - with few exceptions. The kit includes packets of organic seeds, soil, and complete instructions for growing multiple plant varieties. The best part of these—they're cheap.
